The do's and don'ts of packing


There are two types of people in the world. There are people who become excited about packing for an upcoming trip, and there are people who can’t stand packing or unpacking, no matter how excited they are about their travel plans. Whether you love it or hate it, you still have to do it before you depart. So, fun or not, we have a few tips that might help you with the packing process. When you’re aware of the do’s and don’ts, it makes things a lot easier.

Do Read Airline Restrictions

From what size luggage you can put on a flight and what you can carry on a flight to what you must pack in your checked luggage, do read about what works and what doesn’t. Getting to the airport only to find out the suitcase you packed is too big or too heavy to check without paying a hefty fee is not a good way to start any travel journey. Knowing the rules saves you a lot of headaches.

Don’t Pack Everything You Own

It’s stressful to pare down what’s in your luggage, but do try. Traveling away from home and all you need is stressful, but most things are easily obtained wherever you’re going. There’s no need to pack the baby four packages of diapers when you can stop when you land to pick them up. Anything you can pick up when you arrive is not worth packing now.

Do Create a Color Scheme

If you’re packing light, create a color scheme. This works because it allows you to pack items that all go together so you can mix and match and create more than one outfit out of one piece of clothing. It also allows you to pare down what you’re packing in terms of accessories. It’s easier to pack all neutrals with one pair of dress shoes and one evening bag than to pack a myriad of colors and four pair of shoes and matching clutches.

Don’t Forget to Check the Weather

One of the biggest mistakes people make when packing is not learning what to pack by checking the weather where they’re going. It might be very warm where you are, but very cold where you’re going. Seasons are different in each corner of the world, and that means understanding what you can expect from the weather prior to packing.
